Dimitri Storm wanted after escaped pursuit in stolen car across several Bay Area counties


ID #13-135

Law enforcement officials today are searching across several counties for a 42-year-old man who is wanted for multiple crimes, including stealing a car and leading authorities on a pursuit through the North Bay last Friday. Dimitri Storm has been identified as the suspect who stole a GMC Acadia in Windsor on Friday and was tracked by Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies to Petaluma, where the deputies tried to contact him. Storm allegedly threatened the deputies, who tried to subdue him with a Taser but were unsuccessful.

He then fled in the SUV into the Woodacre area of Marin County and was not found despite an hours-long search. A photo lineup shown to the deputies led to Storm being identified as the suspect, sheriff’s Sgt. Michael Raasch said. Evidence found inside a backpack in Woodacre during the search also linked Storm to crimes in Ben Lomond in Santa Cruz County, Raasch said.

Santa Cruz County sheriff’s officials said crimes allegedly committed by Storm in their jurisdiction include auto burglaries in Ben Lomond between March 31 and April 2, as well as a recent robbery in the 3800 block of Chardonnay Road. He is known to steal license plates and change the plates on a vehicle he has stolen, and may be targeting empty vacation rental houses for other crimes, according to sheriff’s officials. Storm also has recently shaved and may have changed his appearance, sheriff’s officials said. Santa Cruz County sheriff’s officials have released photos of Storm.
